I have 16 malware scanners including, A2, AVG, Ad-Aware, Bazooka, Ewido, HijackThis, Microsoft, Norton, NoAdware, Spybot, SpywareDetector, SpywareBlaster, SpywareGuard, Spyware Nuker, Webroot Spysweeper & XsoftSpy. All are used for weekly scans.
The most recent purchase was SpywareDetector which came up with a number of high risk files from organisations called Starr Pro, BingoFun Games & RealSpy. Somewhat mystified as to why none of the other scanners had seen these I looked up the names on the net & indeed they are not good. In addition I located the rogue files on my PC & did a right click/properties to get a fwe more clues. The author of the Starr Pro files for instance is a chap called Eric W. Engler who also seems to be a bit of a so & so & has fingers in some very dubious monitoring style software.
However, I am still not sure whether to delete the little blighters on the basis that only one scanner found them. False positives?
Do you keep your 16 spyware scanner updated? If not uninstall Bazooka, Ewido, HijackThis, Microsoft, Norton, NoAdware, Spybot, SpywareDetector, SpywareBlaster, SpywareGuard, Spyware Nuker, Webroot Spysweeper, XsoftSp, AVG and keep A2 and Ad-Aware, keep them updated.
